I’d really like to know more about the BARS. Genuine interest.

You can find out more at http://www.barsoc.org or if you have any questions feel free to post them here or on our website. Or you can use the ‘contact us’ function on the BARsoc website 🙂

Hi, I enjoyed your talk in Liverpool (16th Dec.) You mentioned a couple of times that you had ‘seen weird stuff’. Was this weirdness stuff that you’ve been unable to explain? Is it detailed anywhere on your blog/website I’d love to read about it.
I’ve always believed that people do see ‘ghosts’ but that there are rational explanations for whatever it is that they are seeing or experiencing. I know that infrasound from a variety of sources or electromagnetic fields produced from something like electricity pylons can affect a person’s perceptions enough for them to experience some aspects of ghostly phenomena. I’m also open to the possibility that current scientific method cannot supply all the answers yet.
If you are interested in pretty way out theories I recently read a book called ‘Daimonic Reality: a field guide to the otherworld’ by Patrick Harpur which attempts to offer an explanation of a wide range paranormal phenomena using Jungian psychology as a basis for the explanation. Maybe you’ve already read it?
I’ll stop rambling now, thanks for coming all the way to Liverpool, I hope you enjoyed it and I hope the noise in the pub didn’t spoil it too much?

Sean- I would also like Haley to be a bit more specific. I have heard tales that are hard to explain (such as the blogger Diglotting, who claimed that he and his entire family saw a paranormal entity on multiple occasions during his review of the end of christianity).

I am also interested in the possibility of group visions- however- I believe that most cases just come from mass hysteria altering the case, so that once witness all of a sudeen becomes multiple witness’, etc)

you would like me to be a bit more specific about what?
